MYO: Barbeque Sauce

This is my recipe. Yes, I make my own barbeque sauce though not often. My cooking decisions are never made with any sort of planning, so giving the sauce a day to breathe never happens. But, when I do, this is my recipe.

Jared’s Barbeque Sauce Recipe

  • ¼ cup minced or finely chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1-2 tbsp butter
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup bourbon or sour mash whiskey (Jim Beam or Jack Daniels, but never Irish, Canadian or Scotch whisky)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp mustard powder
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and sauté until translucent and soft. Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan and reduce to low heat for 20 minutes. Allow to cool, then transfer to a sealable, airtight container and refrigerate. Make a day ahead so the sauce flavors have a chance to crossmojolate.
